Victor Osimhen’s intermediary, Shira Yussuf , has played down reports linking the Golden Boot winner at the 2015 FIFA Under 17 World Cup with a possible switch to European champions Barcelona.
Reports back in his homeland had claimed that the Azulgranas were keen on landing the signature of the Golden Eaglets sensation, with a certain Ryan Hartsfield expected in Lagos to thrash out a one million euros deal with representatives of the teenager.
But Yussuf has reiterated that Ultimate Strikers have not received a concrete approach from Barcelona but will not turn down the Spanish powerhouse if they come knocking on the door.
“Barcelona have not offered one million euros for Osimhen, It was funny reading the report because they have not made contact with us, ” Shira Yussuf told allnigeriasoccer.com.
“There is nothing official from Barcelona or their representatives. When the Tottenham Hotspur news came out, it wasn’t from us and nobody should be worried.
“We know the clubs talking to us and Barcelona is not one of them. If Barcelona are really interested and approach us, we will listen to them.”
Osimhen is currently in Gambia training with Nigeria’s Olympic National Team ahead of their participation at the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations.
